Cows, a type of ungulate

Ungulates are hooved animals belonging to the clade Euungulata generally of the 'odd-toed' variety (Perissodactyla; for example horses, zebras, rhinos) or 'even-toed' type (Artiodactyla; for example deer, hippos, goats).

Most ungulates have two toes, but horses have one.

Because the ungulate feet are very different from human hands, more than usual diversion from the basic animal form can be found with zoomorphic bipedal furry characters. A zoomorphic horse may have horse-like hind legs (slightly modified for walking upright), but the fore legs do usually have hands more human-like than a single finger one would expect on a horse. To retain the difference between odd- and even-toed orders, the former may have three or five fingers, and the latter four, though this is not always depicted like that.
